robbed their national treasuries and abused their powers? >>> a court in india sentenced two men and a woman to death today for their roles in the 2003 terror attack in the city of mumbai. in that attack two taxis blew up within minutes of one another, killing 52 people. investigators say the three were members of the lashkary tibia, a banned militant group that has also been blamed for the attacks in mumbai that killed 106 people late last year. lawyers for those sentenced today said they would appeal. death sentences in india are rarely carried out. >>> this was another deadly day for u.s. forces in afghanistan, as casualties in that war rise sharply. the u.s. military said four marines were killed when a roadside bomb struck their vehicle in western afghanistan. in the six days of this month, at least 15 western troops have been killed in afghanistan. >>> in the middle east today, a prominent human rights group said thousands of rockets fired from the gaza strip into israel were unlawful and unjustified, and amount to war crimes by the hamas leadership in gaza. those attacks c
faces 40 lashes. >>> and from india, a human rights group charged today that the police system in that country needs some major overhaul to meet international standards. human rights watch said that while india is modernizing rapidly the police continue to use old methods including abuse and threats. it said the police sometimes detained people illegally, torture and kill suspects and refused to investigate crimes against the politically powerful. the indian government had no immediate response. >>> was the british government complicit in the torture of terror suspects in a secret work conducted by western intelligent agencies over the last eight years? that question was raised after the release of a pakistani man ben yan mohammed from american custody at guantanamo bay, cuba. when mohammed returned to britain, he sued the government in a test case claiming the intelligence agency, mi5 was involved in his interrogations. while government claims its got nothing to hard a parliamentary commission is now calling for an independent investigation as we hear from andrew thomas of itn
in india, as well. india will be an economy we will take far greater notice of as the years go by. i agree totally in the decoupling. we are continuing to see that shift in economic power from west to east. we have too just to it. you have to adjust to it. far more severely than we do. it isn't something that is going to go away. but it cannot done and we will do it. but whether it will be deflationary or not, i'm not quite sure. >> meanwhile, howard, if i can just change tax slide, a large part of the rally in europe has been from financials. but we heard from rbs today who added realism. >> yes, they did. it has been an amazing week. yes, we were very glad the it's all over. what a week for banks. the good, the bad and the ugly. well, if the ugly is royal bank of scotland today, then we can actually live through it. but you know, the bottom line is that there's still a massive write-off here. banks are not performing in the way, the manner which they need to. there's a lot of clearing of decks to do and there's a lot of change of strategy still to come. but well done to those like hsbc a
china is about 30%. if you look at 40 years down the line, china and india will be above that. so you have an enormous structure taking place and, therefore, a strong engine of growth. clearly, if the u.s. consumer was going to collapse again, i don't think the chinese, indian, brazilian consumer would be able to compensate. but if we have a stabilization, as i believe we will have in the western economies, i think that the marginal call is going to be on the emerging economies and i think that's the engine of growth. >> manford, what do you think? to believe what virginie said makes you think asia can decouple with what's going on in the rest of the world. >> i have to agree with her to a larger extent. the asian consumer is becoming more important. but the absolute numbers don't show it. it shows an increasingly large consumer. but we need the situation where the u.s. consumer does recover to at least a moderate extent. i don't think complete decoupling is a possibility. >> mamprett gill, thank you, thank you, virginie, as well. >> thank you. >>> west lb is refusing to comment on su
talking you with you. thank you very much. let's head out to india right now. mumbai for the latest on the india bit report. ayesha faridi joins us. hello, eayesha. >> thanks for that, christine. after a very tough day, more action seen for the broader market. while the sensex is a shade odd in the green, the crucial point, i think, is that is standing above that 4,700 mark. and it's the broader markets which have seen more. meantime, of course, a lot of things are really playing up. banking is one such bank. this led to the kind of recovery that we have seen today. so a couple of these counters and not just the heavyweight counters, development credit bank amongst the midcap banks had been showing you gains of about 5 odd percent. you've got axis bank is holding up by about 1.5%. icici bank, over a 3% move. l&t is doing out quite well. in the meantime, we have got a couple of news reports, still unconfirmed, that india plans to sue the euro union at the world trade organization at the wto for allowing big pharmaceutical companies to detain engine nettic drugs in transit to developi
on india? we have the economy growing 6.1% in the june quarter. how sustainable is it once this sort of stimulus kind of wears off? >> well, it seems that, you know, all those countries that have been hit much harder than the u.s. itself, the u.s. was the epicenter of the crisis, but all the asia countries have been hit much harder and have fallen down further. so they rebound also in a stronger fashion. i think this is just a rebound of, you know, looking like more recovery potential. but i think, you know, as the u.s. is also picking up speed now in the third quarter. we should be quite a sustainable recovery across asia. >> yeah. we also have in japan, of course, a new government in place. we also have mixed data coming out, japan today. we have industrial output better than expected growing 1.9% in july, but retail sales also falling in july, as well. how do you think all of this is going to weigh on the bank of japan? >> well, we think that the bank of japan is going to keep the monetary policy for a considerable period of time. but certainly what we are now seeing is at least i

of inflation especially in areas such as india and china, if we start to see areas there, we'll see commodities sustained. i am against ru bin on this particular point.t. i think we will see a stronger move ahead. it's more inflation led. the cost of money being so low at the moment that's driving that price. if we start to see a tightening, then the commodity rally westbound able to be sustained. >> martin, always a pleasure speaking to you. xw >>> shares in barclays trading higher after a profit jumped 8% in the first half to just under $5 billion. the numbers were shy of forecast after impairment charges on corporate and consumer loans jumped 86%. the profit of the group's investment dropped from a year ago thanks to the acquisition of lehman brothers and commodity revenu revenues. speaking first, the president bob diamond, said the bank is getting conservative. >> it's getting easier and easier to see exactly how it's going to play out. we are expecting a difficult second half in the year in terms of provisioning. that's part of our plan. >> in china, more signs that the government is putti
for joining us. let's head over to india and join ayesha faridi live for the india business report. >> thanks for that, christine. standing or staring at that 1.5% gain for both the sensex and the nifty. might i add, it has come off from the top of the day. we're almost staring at a 100 point rally for the nifty just about a while ago. technology has been weak in trade today. watch out for counters. unitech amongst the real estate space, it's almost a tug of war space. reliance industries, which has an extremely high weighted in the index, that counter is flattened. but the rest of the market is looking good. telecom is definitely in focus. reliance communications now, we are expecting up from our sources that reliance communications is in talk for source based information up now. but that counter is holding up. more update coming in part and mtn, the deal is currently on and our sources indicate that the board will be meeting today. if it is conclusive, we can expect some agreement from the deal in the next ten days. the going has been good for that one. the metals space and the real estate
's basically the only computer people are going to have in emerging markets. in india a government regulator just put out a report, four times as many people getting on the web on their phones as on their pc. >> what about that? do you buy into some of these trends or are you just literally looking very specifically at dividend plays and value plays? >> well, one of the things that we've seen is the u.s. consumer and consumer around the world is actually continuing to buy stuff, which is great. you would think that with the challenges the consumer has faced over the last year or so in deleveraging and everything else and the job market the way it is the consumers wouldn't be spending. but one of the things that we're hopeful about with the economy is that the consumer's actually out there spending money. >> well, what about the market here? you're talking about a market that's up 50% from the bottom on march 9th or so. >> we think right now we're pretty much as close to a maximum value point for the moment. when third quarter earnings come out, we expect them to be pleasing enough that the m
and india you have to have a strategy for economic growth and economic to filament in a period of considerable challenge. our argument is if we want to build a safe prosperous and free future we need to create the most productive most creative most entrepreneurial pro-market economy that runs on smart and effective economic regulation. let me be clear. i believe if you set out and say well what maximize their are ways to do that. you said what maximize the number of small businesses created by small business there are ways to do that. if you said how can i have the most continuous process of innovation we know how to it just doesn't fit the political elite definition of the future which is high techs, bigger shocker c and politicians entered. so, long term we're going to need budgetary reform legislation. it's interesting the last congress more than a dozen bills introduced to establish entitlement and budget commission's but if all the legislation did was have the same old conversation within the same old frame work you in fact wouldn't achieve very much. you end up with a com
or india or iraq or indonesia where they end up and things have soared sort of hidden values. religion fascinates me so you get the southeast asian religious figures of course, but it tells us to behave ourselves, a little stream, put it around your neck. it is a begging bowl from afghanistan picked up in a bizarre. the work is very fine if you look and the thing is you don't want to publish something like this. let the dirt of the sentry on it. my brother gave me these for christmas because we had some when we were children and it's just a reminder of when we were kids. they are called britain's, these little soldiers. but the most important thing in this room by far even more important than the books, pictures of my wife. they are all over the house. when i write, my goal is not to disappoint my wife, not to dismay her. it doesn't mean i want to make her angry. we want to disagree on things but my test is have i written sufficiently honest with enough integrity to pass the kathryn mcintyre peters test and i have another test at penn state as an undergrad back in the 60's, 70's when i

for that report. >> in india, ayesha faridi joins us live for the india business report. >> we participated in the global rally today. yesterday it clocked a new high for ourselves and the nifty clocked that or cruised past that 4,700 mark. today, the markets chose to consolidate. the biggest drav dragger is oil and gas heavyweight, which is why you're seeing the nifty break away and increase those values. tata motors is your biggest gainer for today, at almost 6.5% gains. there are also rumors in the market that they may get the loan guarantee approved for the government for bridge loan acquisition of land rover. besides that, most of the commodity stocks have been doing very well. you've got auto ancillary stocks looking very well. the monthly sales numbers that came out for auto stocks and infillry stocks are picking up in trade amid the mid and the small caps are holding up, as well. >>> elsewhere, we are looking at euro's biggest bank, hsbc, the company could soon be one of the first foreign companies to list in shanghai. reuters says it could raise up to $7.3 billion in a shanghai ipo

is the most cluttered room in the house i tend to be a little more austere but from pakistan or india or an iraq or indonesia weird you end up? but they do have some hidden values religion fascinates me but the southeast asia and religion figure of buddha telling us to be gave ourselves put strings around it is a begging bowl from afghanistan. the work is a very fine and if you look you do not want to polish to something like this. my mother gave me these because we're a little when we were children we had some. it is a reminder of when we were kids. they are called britons, these little mental soldiers. but the most important thing in this room, by far, even more important than books, pictures of my wife. they are all over the house. she is slavic but when i write, my goal is not to disappoint not to dismay i do not want to make per angry but my test really is and i have written a sufficiently honestly with enough integrity to pass the catherine mcintyre peters test roi also have another test at penn state as the underground -- undergrad in the late '60s when it was voted number one

. >> you travelled around, germany, france, india, the uk, what did you notice. what kind of recommendations did you get about how they would go about treating it? >> everybody approached it differently. several countries would have done the same high-tech procedures, operation that an american doctor recommended. much less, 1/6 of the cost, 1/8 of the cost. in britain, the doctor told me to live with it. you're living your life. not going to fix this. good care in canada, not if you're only hurt. n only if you're acutely sick. he said i'll send you to the orthopedist, it will take six to nine months. >> india -- japan, i believe, they wanted to try other things first. india, alternative medicine. herbal remedies and massage. >> that's right. we did herbal medicine for five weeks. six guys massaged my shoulder with warm oil every day. it worked. more movement and less pain out of it. and the japanese insurance system would have paid for that. they paid for acupuncturacupunc shots -- japan covers everything. that's the broadest choice of any health care system i have ever s
, of the scope of atrocities that were going on india down. the other thing that you, after john kerry gave his testimony to the senate in 1971, remember, vietnam veterans against the war. after his testimony, the nixon administration, we now know, worked closely with another veterans group that eventually came the veterans, that's kind of the ring, the senate, that worked closely with them to put out a different story to the public. that these guys were liars and fabricators, and in fact, the army records don't show that they were liars. >> thank you. >> incidentally, you mentioned john kerry, you know as probably most of you recall in 2004, he was attacked by the swift boaters when he was running for president for his testimony in 1971, war crimes were a common occurrence in the non. and it was an effective attack that helped defeat him. but one of the people, one of the officers was part of a small group that collected these records in the pentagon is now a retired general, and a vocal opponent to the iraq war. in 2040 contacted the kerry campaign three times. he wanted to tell them that the

on the india business report. >> following it up from asia, down by 50 points for the nifty right now. almost over 1%, though it's recovered from the low point of the day. we were staring down by about a 2%. you are seeing heavyweight selling, beat up markets are selling off and you are seeing institutional selling coming in. so reliance industries or in gc, both of these counters are giving off a lot by way of momentum. you have counters from the entire real estate space like unitech and glenn mark pharmaceuticals, that is one count which is in focus and trade today. here is perhaps the reason why. forest labs currently says they did not show positive results in the phase 2b trials pop so any jerk reaction coming in on opening bell. the counter was down about 18 odd percent. still continues to suffer, down about 14% on last count. some bit of recovery in ranbaxy, idn and a couple of other counters which have which has sold off a bit in the last week or so. with that, it's back to you. >> ayesha faridi, thank you very much. and it's back to becky now. >> the world is focusing on the economic

opportunities young people have in india, brazil and all these other countries that developmentally 30 years ago were on par with the countries there. but they know in the arab world they slipped farther and farther behind. so this desire to join the rest of the world and be part of this global trend, i think, is a very powerful tool. >> thank you. are there other questions or comments? there's one here and then one in the back. >> i'm from east africa. originally i'm from somalia. i just want to share with you, which has given me some glimpse of hope in the subregion we were talking about. one was the launch of the arab -- what do you call the office for -- center for the training of human rights in doha with the office of the head commission for human rights. and the ceremony which i attended i found an activist and i hope -- i'm not saying -- the circle will feature activists from doha, from kuwait, from bahrain particularly and women again with their traditional attire and some of them coming and speaking outñk frequently because it's largely focus on government and they went to training. b

china and india to act first. if america solves our energy problems first, every country on earth will beg for the technologies that we developed. if not, we will be begging for technologies developed elsewhere. america has always prospered by being one step ahead. we mass produced the car and american manufacturing built the middle class. we sparked the i.t. revolution and our high-tech revolution gives us high-paying jobs. today being one step ahead means developing the clean-energy technologies of future before anyone else does. waiting for china to address its emission problems before we address ours is like waiting for an opponent to finish the race before we start to lace up our shoes. china's not waiting for america to act. it's already implemented strong policies to promote clean energy. chinese fuel-efficiency economy standards are higher today than ours will be in 2020. they have already set a 15% renewable energy standard for 2020. and their government recently said they could reach 20%. and in 2009 china became the world's largest clean-energy investor. it plans to spe
